Speeding in France, Swiss car

Anyone know if France and Switzerland have a reciprocal speeding fine system if you get flashed in France in a Swiss registered car?

Just idle curiosity you understand? ;-)

Re: Speeding in France, Swiss car

OK OK Im being sent to Coventry for being naughty... and not running a search...

Seems that Speeding Worries shows that the Swiss certainly send fines outwards, but anyone received a fine from France.

PS I am totally contrite as I got the wrong icons and meant to use the sheepish embarrased one... but cant find out how to edit it.

Re: Speeding in France, Swiss car

I think it will depend on where abouts in France you were flashed i.e. which department.

I've only ever been flashed in Provence in France and never heard anything about it, but I would be very surprised if Alsace are so forgiving.

Similiarily, in Germany, I've been flashed up near Hannover and got away with it, but when I was flashed near Karlsruhe, the Polizei there were quite happy to contact me through the Zh Polizei and send me a fine.

I think it might be the case that the neighbouring counties look after each other.
Anyway seeing as it's only idle curiosity, what have you to worry about?

Re: Speeding in France, Swiss car

depends how fast you were going,you'll soon know when your freindly policeman phones you,to bring the money down to the police station,if you have not heard within about a month you will get away with it.

Bescanson throws out very very heavy fines, I'M TALKING FROM FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE ALTHOUGH THIS WAS SOME 15 YEARS AGO I SAW NO CHANGE FROM 2000FRfr

Re: Speeding in France, Swiss car

3 March, and no news yet. Not quite sure how fast, I think a decelerating 140. I thought it was a 130 zone... on that road it goes back and forth between 110 and 130. Je touche du bois..

Re: Speeding in France, Swiss car

Nothing to worry about, just dont break the minimum limit of a minor offense, roughly you would need to be over 40Km plus tolerance to have any real problems
